    I see a lot of 140F and 150F.. I keep my cover closed most of the time - using a 20 flat screen instead. Would it be okay to position a fan behind to cool it off? Any other suggestions?

    Thank you....

    A fan might help, as would doing something to allow more air to flow around the computer.

    There are alot of laptop coolers/heatshields on the market that range from just plastic or special cloth to full on aluminum with fans. Zalman makes an impressive looking one that had good reviews if your looking for the top end of the market. It was about 70$ aud

    I've got a fan bed for mine. It only set me back $15 (Australian) but you'd have to shop around. It's a generic one but it works fine. It's a fan. It spins. It's USB powered. It's not really worth forking out a lot of money on a brand-name one, IMO.

    The Raindesign iLap looks nice.. I have one of the other fans that sit beneath the notebook - but I didn't think it did anything.. I'll give it another try since a few people have suggested it...

    Thanks for all the advice!
